Sundays are for snuggling

Me: Mutley is very tired.

Nell: Yes. He is going to be 16 in September so he needs his rest.

Me: And look at Dave.

Nell: David is on Snuggling Duty. He is exceptionally gifted in this area. He is keeping Mutley warm while watching over him.

Me: I think he might be asleep too.

Nell: Sleeping is fine while snuggling. I always say Sunday is the snuggliest day of the week.

Me: You are right. We all need a snuggle.

Nell: Actually we need to enjoy the peace and quiet while we can. It’s hard hats and sequinned safety vests from tomorrow when the scaffolders arrive.

Me: Sequinned safety vests?

Nell: The Cat has been busy embroidering them with our names. We don’t want our vests mixed up with the roofers.

Me: I wish Charlotte wasn’t going today.

Nell: She will be back before you know it and you are having lunch with your friend Irene.

Me: Yes. I haven’t seen her in years. Thank you for cheering me up, Nell.

Nell: As I always say: ‘On hungry days be the biscuit in the bowl’.

Me: I’m not sure that’s right. You could get eaten.

Nell: That’s not the point. It’s about something to look forward to.

Me: Dave doesn’t even remember eating his biscuits.

Nell: Just stop with the biscuits.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
